Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders, two sides of some of the most exciting young Indian talent, will compete at the iconic Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Saturday. Both sides have had two wins in their first three games and will all be ready to take another win. While both teams have the same number of points in their pot, KKR is confident as they ended the unbeaten streak of the high-flying Rajasthan Royals squad in the final game, while Delhi suffered a defeat to SunRisers Hyderabad.
Both teams have played 24 games against each other, with KKR being the winner 13 times, while Delhi was the winner in 11 games, including a victory in the Super Over.

KKR saw their youngsters Shubman Gill and the fast bowling duo Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti shine in their previous match against Rajasthan. While his team has performed well as a unit, KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik has failed with the bat so far. In Sharjah, however, he wants to lead by example and help his team win again.
Like Karthik, Shreyas Iyer, the youngest captain in IPL 2020, has led his side well, but has disappointed with the bat. The short dimensions at Sharjah Cricket Stadium give him the chance to be the game changer and help his team regain the number one spot in the points table again.
